Herring vs Oquendo scorecards:
“We knew coming in that he was going to be aggressive with the head first,” said Herring afterward. “It just kept repeating on the inside, and Tony Weeks finally caught on to it. I didn’t want it to end like that…my team felt it was too much, so we had to stop it. Whatever.
Herring added “It just got ugly. I wasn’t too satisfied with my performance, to be honest with you. In the beginning, everything was going real smooth, me boxing. I put him down with an uppercut. We knew he was going to come head-first. We had to time it. In the end, I wasn’t happy with how I was looking. I’m disappointed with the outcome. I’ve never been in that situation.”
